Options

Dance Xpress offers three options for competitive company dance.

Group - accommodates group dancers with a more flexible schedule but still provides access to annual conventions and competitions. Group is for competitive dancers that also have other extra curricular activities. This level allows dancers to perform a group number only; there are no solo dances. Group numbers will rehearse every Saturday starting in January. Nutcracker is offered at no additional charge.

Solo - accommodates solo dancers with a more flexible schedule but still provides access to annual conventions and competitions. Solo is for competitive dancers that also have other extra curricular activities. This level allows dancers to perform a solo only; there are no group dances. Nutcracker is offered at no additional charge.

Elite - allows dancers the challange of a more rigorous schedule. Elite is for dancers whose primary focus in life is dance. These dancers will perform both a solo and group dance. Elite also includes both Nutcracker and Aerial if they are of the correct age at no additional cost.

All - Dancers in all options participate at annual conventions and competitions each year in addition to extra performance opportunities and are required to present self choreography at the company showcase each spring.

Dancers interested in any of the options are chosen and placed by the director based on a wide range of criteria including commitment and dance skill.

 

Group and Solo

Group and Solo dancers are welcome to take up to 4 hours a week for the Group and Solo prices. They are required to take two ballet and one jazz class each week. These dancers will only compete in the novice category.

The cost for Group is $300 a month.

The cost for Solo is $350 a month.

This price includes up to 4 hours of classes, performance, costume, competition fees for two competitions, one convention, and Nutcracker. Ten private lessons per dance year are also included for solo dancers; all other private lessons will be billed at $20 per half hour. All group rehearsals are included in this price. Observation fees for one parent are also included at each convention and competition.

Aerial classes will be billed at a discounted rate in addition to your normal fees if you choose to be a part of Aerial (ages 10 and Up). Aerial is an additional $50 per month for group and solo dancers.

Any dancer taking more than 4 hours a week will be billed the difference over 4 hours, with a maximum monthly charge of $400 no matter how many hours you take including Aerial classes.

Summer classes, summer private lessons and summer competition fees are not included in this price if a dancer chooses any of these activities.

At Dance Xpress we do not place an emphasis on winning or being the best, if it happens, that is icing on the cake. What we do focus on is learning about our team, our friends and being a winner in our hearts. Not focusing on a trophy should not imply we do not score high; our dancers consistently take home high point and special awards.

Elite

Elite dancers are required to take at least 8 hours a week including three ballet classes, two jazz classes and are welcome to take as many additional classes as they want free of charge.

Attendance rules will be enforced with this group and more than two non-made up absences per class per semester may result in a dancer being removed from a class or transferred from Elite to Group or Solo.

The cost for Elite is $400 a month.

This flat fee offers almost everything Dance Xpress has for a single flat monthly charge including Nutcracker and Aerial.

This price includes all class, performance, costume, competition fees for two competitions, one convention, Nutcracker and Aerial. Ten private lessons per dance year are also included for solos; all other private lessons will be billed at $20 per half hour.

The only charges not included are extra solo private lessons if you exceed ten, additional competition fees and sports wear. Observation fees for one parent are also included at each convention and competition.

This package includes one solo and one group dance at two competitions. Additional competitions, solos, groups and duet/trios may require additional fees. Duet/trios are allowed in Elite only with the director's approval.

Summer classes, summer private lessons and summer competition fees are not included in this price if a dancer chooses any of these activities.
